My elementary school teachers told me I’d never make anything of my life because I’d draw in class all the time.

Ironically though, when you tell me I can’t do something, it’s like pouring gasoline on a raging fire. I’ll do everything to try and prove you wrong.

My creative journey started way back in 1986 when I was customizing Chuck Taylor Converse All-Stars and Levis 501s with Sharpie Pens. My artwork took off and I started to make some great money.

So how did things all turn out?

  • Designing artwork for billion dollar brands and hundreds of businesses.
  • Serving honorably in the U.S. Army Reserves and National Guard.
  • Coaching thousands of freelancers from all walks of life.
  • Writing several books and hundreds of blog posts.
  • Speaking at events all over the country and appearing on TV several times.
  • Traveling all over the world and experiencing new cultures.

Most importantly though, I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart 33 years and managed to produce a couple damn good kids in the process.

Not bad for someone who would “never do anything” with his life.

And I'm not done yet!
